Liya Kebede, the Master of Sporty Glamour

Liya Kebede (Getty)You probably recognize Liya Kebede from her gazillion modeling campaigns for brands such as Estee Lauder, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The 36-year-old Ethiopian beauty also happens to have graced numerous Vogue covers around the globe. But we're here to talk about her phenom off-duty fashion.

Kebede's style is one of the most distinct in the biz—and when you're in the mix with Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, that's really saying something. She brilliantly combines sporty with glamorous and can rock a suit like no other. Graphic black-and-white, slouchy slacks, racer stripes and strong-shouldered blazers have all become her signature.

Kibede proves you don't have to ditch your tomboy streak for a night on the town. See what we mean with our favorite of her outfits below.
